# A Big Burger has 1/4 pound of meat and a superburger has 1/3 pound of meat. How much more meat is used for the superburger?

The superburger contains $\frac{1}{12}$ pound more meat than the Big Burger.

#### Explanation:

We represent the extra meat in the superburger by $x$. The equation will be:

$x = \frac{1}{3} - \frac{1}{4}$

Multiply all factors by $12$ and simplify.

$12 x = 4 - 3$

$12 x = 1$

Divide both sides by $12$.

$x = \frac{1}{12}$
